Sometimes the hardest of questions can be found in the simplest of
answers. The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit are One. To simplify it
more I will use the example used by St. Patrick when he explained it to
the Irish upon the beginning steps of converting the whole nation. And
this is fact. He used the example of the shamrock. Quite a simple,
impressive and easy understanding for a beginner in this topic. St. Patrick
took a shamrock with three clovers and one with four. He asked them
what makes a true shamrock and they said three clovers four wouldn't for
it wouldnt be a true shamrock. This is just an example of a simpler way to
explain this issue. I believe the Creator with all his might and goodness
can become three in one. When Jesus told his disciples "Those who have
seen Me have seen God". Jesus was God's mouthpiece on Earth (a speaker
basically for Himself.) God for all his infinite power cannot directly preach
to unworthy beings such as ourselves. So he sent Himself in a way we
could understand, we could relate and that is through Jesus Christ. A
Being who shared pain and joy as any other human yet still divine by His
Holy Nature. Through the other prophets beginning with Abraham to
Moses, the people did not follow God's covenant (the pact we as humans
should have kept our promise to Him). Through Christ (Himself), a new
covenant that would last till the final day should be observed.

I'm having a hard time understanding why Muslims have a hard time with
this. Is there not 99 names for Allah? Why is it wrong to believe God can
be three beings into One?
